Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have an '05 malibu with the V6. Whenever i drive it in the rain or wash it,(not the engine, because of the missing fuse panel cover) the engine will start but wont run right, the traction control light comes on and the accelerator pedal is non responsive. It usually starts running fine again after it dries off. But, this time its been a week, still runs horrible, and there is a clicking sound coming from the relay labeled "powertrain" Can somebody please give me some insight on what could be wrong?

SOURCE: Service engine soon light flashing on acceleration

It sounds like u got a coil pack going out. Alot of times when your engine is cold or when you arn't putting a load on it the coils won't fail. How ever when the engine reaches operating temperatures and there is load on the coils that is when they are going to break down. my advice would be to get a scanner and see what cylinder the missfire is at then swwap that coil to another cylinder to verify that the coil is defective. If it is purchase another with a new spark plug put it in and let it rip.

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

SOURCE: 1998 subaru forester runs rough when it rains.

Check the cap and rotor for internal carbon tracking or, just change them. Also, take a look at the coil when its dark and rainy and see if there is any arcing where the coil wire goes into it.

Where is the cigarette lighter fuse in a 2003 malibu


Just pop your hood and look on left side for the underhood electrical center. On the inside cover is fuse information which will tell you which fuse is the 20 Amp minifuse for Cigar Lighter/Aux Power Outlet. Of course if cover is missing then you will need more information. It is the only 20 Amp (Yellow) fuse in the center so shouldn't be hard to find (#34 on label). Lower Left Quadrant assuming this fuse label shows stuff in car position.

When it is raining the engine idel is rough. 5.4 L Hemi engine. Only occurs during a heavy rain or in the car wash.


If you lift your hood, check the wires that are for your windshield wiper fluid, I had the same problem and because the wires were being pressed against the molding water was able to drop down onto the engine. When ever it rains really hard felt like the truck was going to cut off. But when the sun was out my baby would pur like a kitten.

Sounds like your under car plastic panels are missing I would go to your local junk yard and get those covers and put them back under there. I had a hyundai that I took the covers off and when I drove in the rain it would get up in the distributor cap and kill the engine. Also dont drive through flooded areas
